With a naturally-occurring golden tinge, muga is one of the most sought-after silks in Assam. It is a strong, organic fibre derived from semi-domesticated silkworms endemic to Assam, known as Antheraea assamensis. It is produced in Goalpara, Udalguri, Sualkuchi, Jorhat, Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, and other areas of Assam. Sericulture, as it is called, was a thriving business under the Ahom rulers and their patronage helped this craft become a household necessity.
During a MUGA scan, a specially trained technician places electrodes on your chest and arms, which hook to an electrocardiograph machine that measures your heart rate (ECG). A camera then takes pictures of your heart while you are resting. The camera uses gamma rays to track the tracer that has been injected. The pictures help a First Coast Heart & Vascular Center physician measure the ejection fraction of your left ventricle and look for other abnormalities.
Choosing the Right Surface for Your Muga: A Comprehensive Overview
If your ejection fraction is less than 50 percent, it means that parts of your heart aren’t moving well, which may be due to heart disease or a previous heart attack. Your doctor can then prescribe other tests or procedures to learn more about your condition.
It’s important to ask your doctor any questions you have about the procedure, what the results might mean for you, and what the next steps might be based on the test results. This is especially true if you’re taking chemotherapy drugs that could potentially affect your heart function.
